For a complete description of the scope of this order, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum. Analysis of Comments Received We addressed all issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs submitted by interested parties in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, which is hereby adopted by this notice. The Appendix to this notice provides a list of sections in the Issues and Decision Memorandum as well as a list of the issues which parties raised. The Issues and Decision Memorandum is a public document and is on file electronically via Enforcement and Compliance’s Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (ACCESS). ACCESS is available to registered users at http://access.trade.gov and it is available to all parties in the Central Records Unit of the main Commerce building, room B8024.

The signed Issues and Decision Memorandum and the electronic version are identical in content. Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on a review of the record and comments received from interested parties regarding the Preliminary Results, we have corrected a ministerial error that occurred in determining the surrogate value for Deosen’s cornstarch.3 We have made no other changes to the Preliminary Results. Separate Rates In the Preliminary Results, we found that Meihua Group International Trading (Hong Kong) Limited, Langfang Meihua Biotechnology Co., Ltd., and Xinjiang Meihua Amino Acid Co., Ltd. 2 See Memorandum ‘‘Issue and Decision Memorandum for the Final Results of the Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Xanthan Gum from the People’s Republic of China; 2017–2018,’’ (Issues and Decision Memorandum), dated concurrently with this notice. 3 See Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 5. E:\FR\FM\25NON1.SGM 25NON1 64832 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 227 / Monday, November 25, 2019 / Notices (collectively, Meihua), Deosen Biochemical (Ordos) Ltd./Deosen Biochemical Ltd. (collectively, Deosen) and CP Kelco (Shandong) Biological Company Limited (CP Kelco (Shandong) demonstrated their eligibility for separate-rate status, but that Hebei Xinhe Biochemical Co., Ltd. and A.H.A. International Co., Ltd. did not demonstrate their eligibility for separate-rate status because both failed to file a separate rate application or a separate rate certification.4 Thus, Commerce treated Hebei Xinhe Biochemical Co., Ltd. and A.H.A. International Co., Ltd. as part of the China-wide entity. No parties commented on these determinations. For the final results of review, we continue to grant Meihua, Deosen, and CP Kelco (Shandong) separate-rate status and deny Hebei Xinhe Biochemical Co., Ltd. and A.H.A. International Co., Ltd. separate-rate status. Final Determination of No Shipments In the Preliminary Results, we found that Jianlong Biotechnology Co., Ltd. (Jianlong) (previously known as Inner Mongolia Jianlong Biochemical Co., Ltd. (IMJ)) and Shanghai Smart Chemicals Co., Ltd. (Shanghai Smart) had no shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR and, therefore, no reviewable transactions during the POR.5 No parties commented on these determinations. For the final results of review, we continue to find that these companies had no shipments during the POR. Dumping Margin for Non-Individually Examined Respondents Granted Separate Rate Status The statute and Commerce’s regulations do not address the rate to apply to respondents not selected for individual examination in an NME administrative review who are eligible for a separate rate when Commerce limits its examination in an administrative review pursuant to section 777A(c)(2) of the Act. Generally, Commerce looks to section 735(c)(5) of the Act, which provides instructions for calculating the all-others rate in a market economy investigation, for guidance when calculating the rate for non-selected respondents that are not examined individually in an NME administrative review but are eligible for a separate rate. Section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act provides that the all-others rate should be calculated by averaging the weighted-average dumping margins for individually-examined respondents, excluding rates that are zero, de minimis, or based entirely on facts available. When the rates for individually examined companies are all zero, de minimis, or based entirely on facts available, section 735(c)(5)(B) of the Act provides that Commerce may use ‘‘any reasonable method’’ to establish the all others rate. After making the change described above, both mandatory respondents, Meihua and Deosen, have a calculated weightedaverage dumping margin of zero percent. As such, we assigned a dumping margin equal to zero percent to the separate rate recipients not selected for examination. Final Results of Administrative Review We determine that the following weighted-average dumping margin exists for the POR: Weighted-average dumping margins (percentage) Exporter Deosen Biochemical Ltd./Deosen Biochemical (Ordos) Ltd ......................................................................................................... Meihua Group International Trading (Hong Kong) Limited/Langfang Meihua Biotechnology Co., Ltd./Xinjiang Meihua Amino Acid Co., Ltd .............................................................................................................................................................................. CP Kelco (Shandong) Biological Company Limited ...................................................................................................................... Assessment Rates Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b), Commerce has determined, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance with the final results of this review. Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication date of the final results of this review. Because Meihua, Deosen, and CP Kelco (Shandong)’s weighted-average dumping margin is zero percent, we intend to instruct CBP to liquidate appropriate entries from these companies without regard to antidumping duties.6 For entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales database submitted by an exporter individually examined during this review, but that entered under the 4 See Preliminary Results, 84 FR at 26814. 5 Id. 6 See Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:31 Nov 22, 2019 Jkt 250001 0.00 0.00 0.00 case number of that exporter (i.e., at the individually-examined exporter’s cash deposit rate), we will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the China-wide rate (i.e., 154.07 percent). Additionally, where we determined that an exporter under review had no shipments of the subject merchandise to the United States during the POR, any suspended entries that entered during the POR under that exporter’s case number will be liquidated at the China-wide rate. Although Commerce discontinued the instant review with respect to Inner Mongolia Fufeng Biotechnologies Co., Ltd./Neimenggu Fufeng Biotechnologies Co., Ltd. (aka Inner Mongolia Fufeng Biotechnologies Co., Ltd.) (Neimenggu Fufeng)/Shandong Fufeng Fermentation Co., Ltd. (Shandong Fufeng)/Xinjiang Fufeng Biotechnologies Co., Ltd. (Xinjiang Fufeng) (collectively, Fufeng), as a result of litigation before the U.S. Court of International Trade,7 the suspension of liquidation must continue during the pendency of the appeals process for that litigation. Therefore, we will not issue liquidation instructions for POR entries of subject merchandise produced and exported by Fufeng until the appeals process has concluded.

The cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. IV. Discussion of The Issues Comment 1: Commerce Should Make No Changes to the Calculations Not Raised in the Case Briefs of the Parties to the Review Comment 2: Commerce Should Not Deduct from the U.S. Price Any Amount for Value-Added Tax Comment 3: Whether Commerce Should Modify Customs Instructions Comment 4: Commerce Should Include Reported Energy Factors of Production in its Normal Value Calculation Comment 5: Commerce Incorrectly Valued Cornstarch Comment 6: Commerce Should Accept Green Health International’s Separate Rate Application V. Conclusion Notification to Importers Regarding the Reimbursement of Duties This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this POR. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in Commerce’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order (APO) This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to APO of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), which continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the proceeding. Timely written notification of the return or destruction of APO materials, or conversion to judicial protective order, is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and terms of an APO is a violation which is subject to sanction. We are issuing these final results of administrative review and publishing this notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act. Dated: November 18, 2019. Jeffrey I.

ACTION: Notice; issuance of an incidental harassment authorization. AGENCY: In accordance with the regulations implementing the Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA), as amended, notification is hereby given that NMFS has issued an incidental harassment authorization (IHA) to Carnival Corporation & PLC (Carnival) to incidentally take, by Level A harassment and Level B harassment, five species of marine mammals during the Port of Long Beach Cruise Terminal Improvement Project in Port of Long Beach, California.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The MMPA prohibits the ‘‘take’’ of marine mammals, with certain exceptions. Sections 101(a)(5)(A) and (D) of the MMPA (16 U.S.C. 1361 et seq.) direct the Secretary of Commerce (as delegated to NMFS) to allow, upon request, the incidental, but not intentional, taking of small numbers of marine mammals by U.S. citizens who engage in a specified activity (other than commercial fishing) within a specified geographical region if certain findings are made and either regulations are issued or, if the taking is limited to harassment, a notice of a proposed incidental take authorization may be provided to the public for review. Authorization for incidental takings shall be granted if NMFS finds that the taking will have a negligible impact on the species or stock(s) and will not have an unmitigable adverse impact on the availability of the species or stock(s) for taking for subsistence uses (where relevant). Further, NMFS must prescribe the permissible methods of taking and other ‘‘means of effecting the least practicable adverse impact’’ on the affected species or stocks and their habitat, paying particular attention to rookeries, mating grounds, and areas of similar significance, and on the availability of the species or stocks for taking for certain subsistence uses (referred to in shorthand as ‘‘mitigation’’); and requirements pertaining to the mitigation, monitoring and reporting of the takings are set forth. The definitions of all applicable MMPA statutory terms cited above are included in the relevant sections below. Summary of Request On February 15, 2019, NMFS received a request from Carnival for an IHA to take marine mammals incidental to the Port of Long Beach Cruise Terminal Improvement Project in Port of Long Beach (POLB), California. The application was deemed adequate and complete on July 12, 2019. Subsequent revisions to the application were submitted by Carnival on September 13, 2019. Carnival’s request is for take of five species of marine mammals by Level B harassment and one of these five species by Level A harassment. Neither Carnival nor NMFS expects serious injury or mortality to result from this activity and, therefore, an IHA is appropriate. In-water activities (pile installation and dredging) associated with the project are anticipated to require five months. E:\FR\FM\25NON1.SGM 25NON1

Memorandum.

Analysis of Comments Received

    We addressed all issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs 
submitted by interested parties in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, 
which is hereby adopted by this notice. The Appendix to this notice 
provides a list of sections in the Issues and Decision Memorandum as 
well as a list of the issues which parties raised. The Issues and

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on a review of the record and comments received from 
interested parties regarding the Preliminary Results, we have corrected 
a ministerial error that occurred in determining the surrogate value 
for Deosen's cornstarch.\3\ We have made no other changes to the 
Preliminary Results.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ See Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 5.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Separate Rates

    In the Preliminary Results, we found that Meihua Group 
International Trading (Hong Kong) Limited, Langfang Meihua 
Biotechnology Co., Ltd., and Xinjiang Meihua Amino Acid Co., Ltd.

[[Page 64832]]

(collectively, Meihua), Deosen Biochemical (Ordos) Ltd./Deosen 
Biochemical Ltd. (collectively, Deosen) and CP Kelco (Shandong) 
Biological Company Limited (CP Kelco (Shandong) demonstrated their 
eligibility for separate-rate status, but that Hebei Xinhe Biochemical 
Co., Ltd. and A.H.A. International Co., Ltd. did not demonstrate their 
eligibility for separate-rate status because both failed to file a 
separate rate application or a separate rate certification.\4\ Thus, 
Commerce treated Hebei Xinhe Biochemical Co., Ltd. and A.H.A. 
International Co., Ltd. as part of the China-wide entity. No parties 
commented on these determinations. For the final results of review, we 
continue to grant Meihua, Deosen, and CP Kelco (Shandong) separate-rate 
status and deny Hebei Xinhe Biochemical Co., Ltd. and A.H.A. 
International Co., Ltd. separate-rate status.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ See Preliminary Results, 84 FR at 26814.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final Determination of No Shipments

    In the Preliminary Results, we found that Jianlong Biotechnology 
Co., Ltd. (Jianlong) (previously known as Inner Mongolia Jianlong 
Biochemical Co., Ltd. (IMJ)) and Shanghai Smart Chemicals Co., Ltd. 
(Shanghai Smart) had no shipments of subject merchandise to the United 
States during the POR and, therefore, no reviewable transactions during 
the POR.\5\ No parties commented on these determinations. For the final 
results of review, we continue to find that these companies had no 
shipments during the POR.

Dumping Margin for Non-Individually Examined Respondents Granted 
Separate Rate Status

    The statute and Commerce's regulations do not address the rate to 
apply to respondents not selected for individual examination in an NME 
administrative review who are eligible for a separate rate when 
Commerce limits its examination in an administrative review pursuant to 
section 777A(c)(2) of the Act. Generally, Commerce looks to section 
735(c)(5) of the Act, which provides instructions for calculating the 
all-others rate in a market economy investigation, for guidance when 
calculating the rate for non-selected respondents that are not examined 
individually in an NME administrative review but are eligible for a 
separate rate. Section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act provides that the all-
others rate should be calculated by averaging the weighted-average 
dumping margins for individually-examined respondents, excluding rates 
that are zero, de minimis, or based entirely on facts available. When 
the rates for individually examined companies are all zero, de minimis, 
or based entirely on facts available, section 735(c)(5)(B) of the Act 
provides that Commerce may use ``any reasonable method'' to establish 
the all others rate. After making the change described above, both 
mandatory respondents, Meihua and Deosen, have a calculated weighted-
average dumping margin of zero percent. As such, we assigned a dumping 
margin equal to zero percent to the separate rate recipients not 
selected for examination.

Final Results of Administrative Review

    We determine that the following weighted-average dumping margin 
exists for the POR:

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b), 
Commerce has determined, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) 
shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject 
merchandise in accordance with the final results of this review. 
Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after 
the publication date of the final results of this review. Because 
Meihua, Deosen, and CP Kelco (Shandong)'s weighted-average dumping 
margin is zero percent, we intend to instruct CBP to liquidate 
appropriate entries from these companies without regard to antidumping 
duties.\6\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-
Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping 
Proceedings; Final Modification, 77 FR 8101, 8103 (February 14, 
2012).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales database 
submitted by an exporter individually examined during this review, but 
that entered under the case number of that exporter (i.e., at the 
individually-examined exporter's cash deposit rate), we will instruct 
CBP to liquidate such entries at the China-wide rate (i.e., 154.07 
percent). Additionally, where we determined that an exporter under 
review had no shipments of the subject merchandise to the United States 
during the POR, any suspended entries that entered during the POR under 
that exporter's case number will be liquidated at the China-wide rate.
    Although Commerce discontinued the instant review with respect to 
Inner Mongolia Fufeng Biotechnologies Co., Ltd./Neimenggu Fufeng 
Biotechnologies Co., Ltd. (aka Inner Mongolia Fufeng Biotechnologies 
Co., Ltd.) (Neimenggu Fufeng)/Shandong Fufeng Fermentation Co., Ltd. 
(Shandong Fufeng)/Xinjiang Fufeng Biotechnologies Co., Ltd. (Xinjiang 
Fufeng) (collectively, Fufeng), as a result of litigation before the 
U.S. Court of International Trade,\7\ the suspension of liquidation 
must continue during the pendency of the appeals process for that 
litigation. Therefore, we will not issue liquidation instructions for 
POR entries of subject merchandise produced and exported by Fufeng 
until the appeals process has concluded.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from

exporters not listed in the table above that have a separate rate, the 
cash deposit rate will continue to be the existing exporter-specific 
rate published for the most recent period; (3) for all China exporters 
of subject merchandise that have not been found to be entitled to a 
separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate previously 
established for the China-wide entity, which is 154.07 percent; and (4) 
for all non-China exporters of subject merchandise which have not 
received their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate 
applicable to the China exporter that supplied that non-China exporter. 
The cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect 
until further notice.

Notification to Importers Regarding the Reimbursement of Duties

    This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) to file a certificate regarding 
the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the 
relevant entries during this POR. Failure to comply with this 
requirement could result in Commerce's presumption that reimbursement 
of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double 
antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order (APO)

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to APO of 
their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of 
proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.305(a)(3), which continues to govern business proprietary 
information in this segment of the proceeding. Timely written 
notification of the return or destruction of APO materials, or 
conversion to judicial protective order, is hereby requested. Failure 
to comply with the regulations and terms of an APO is a violation which 
is subject to sanction.
    We are issuing these final results of administrative review and 
publishing this notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) 
of the Act.

    Dated: November 18, 2019.
Jeffrey I. Kessler,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
